The City of Dawsonville welcomes your business to our community and appreciates the opportunity to serve you!

Every business in the City limits must apply for an Occupational Tax Certificate and renew it annually.

IS MY LOCATION INSIDE CITY LIMITS?? Prior to submitting an application, please verify that the physical address of your business is within Dawsonville city limits. Post office boxes can be used for mailing addresses but not business location. For verification, please contact the City of Dawsonville.

You only need one Occupational Tax Certificate to conduct business; if you are within city limits, you do NOT need to get a certificate from Dawson County.
